We had a lovely weekend in Pittsburgh exhibiting at Spring Market. It was wonderful to see many of our loyal customers, new store owners and many of my designer friends. Thanks for all your support.
As we were able to drive I took the whole gang. My three children Kelly, Jason and Aimee, Mitch our new employee and Melissa my good friend. I had lots of helpers but my main objective was to have them experience market and meet many of our customers. We all had fun some a little too much!
A fun group who shared their purses
Astrid from Cotton and Color in Switzerland sharing the projects I will be teaching for her next April
Barbie Brooks shared her Crimson Tweed quilt with me
Jen Kingwell, my good friend, in her colorful booth
My friend Kori in her booth. Her first market with fun patterns under the name Olive Grace using Genziana wool thread for embroidery
Lots of inspiration and fun colors this spring!
Spent the last couple of days organizing after market and getting ready for my class in Orvieto, Italy. Left today blogging in Toronto then overnight to Rome.
Was able to fit in a quick trip to the Cleveland Art Museum yesterday with Joyce. I wanted to see the Van Gogh exhibited Repetitions. It was great made me see my little repetitive samplers in a new light. Lots of texture and great color combinations in his paintings
